Diastasis - Definition


Definition


Diastasis is the pathological separation of two parallel bones at their ends. A diastasis can for example appear at the ankle between the tibia and fibula following a sprain. There can also be diastasis between two vertebrae of the spine. Diastasis is also a term used for the muscles and affects mainly infants and pregnant women. It is a separation of the abdominal muscle from the abdominal wall. Women are the most affected during pregnancy or just after childbirth. It is sometimes necessary to perform surgery, but this is rare.
